This space…life, as it grows dim, do I dare to let him in?
He has haunted me from my youth, since I awakened.
I was 8, a day which gives me fright. But I then saw there that life was IT.
This IT I’ve called it ever since. A blessing, one would or should suppose, but not for me all these years as I’ve posed.
Posed for what? To reach an age that today is defined from yesterday. I’m old.
We will, I hope, live much longer, but that doesn’t mean I’ll grow any stronger.
Rather, the clock defines us still. Will not, will wither, will it be it as it may.
Not to dismay, it is our plunder, our way upon this earth asunder.
As for me, I will stand up tall and take my fate, as much we all.
Slay me now or slay me yet, I take my odds on life’s sure bet, that we will know when to end the show and be as yet, another remembered.
